Gen Franks: "Saddam said he had WMD's and would use them"

August 1, 2004
AMERICA’S Iraq war commander, General Tommy Franks, has disclosed the best-kept secret of the conflict: through a double agent called April Fool, he tricked Saddam Hussein into fatally bungling the defence of his country.

As a result, while American armoured columns raced to Baghdad from southern Iraq, Saddam held back many of his best divisions to fight expected attacks from the north and west, which never came. Inadequately defended, Baghdad fell in less than three weeks and the regime collapsed. ...

Franks, who retired after the war, insists he was never in any doubt that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, nor that President George W Bush and Tony Blair sincerely believed this.

Shortly before the war Franks visited Jordan’s King Abdullah and President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt. Both said they had been told by Saddam that he had WMD which he would use against the Americans. FR Reprint.
